Dominic West receives delivery of a lawn mower outside his Wiltshire home

Dominic West was seen accepting a delivery outside his Wiltshire home where he was spotted running with his wife Catherine FitzGerald earlier this week.

The married couple put on a united front after pictures of Dominic, 51, canoodling with actor Lily James, 31, while on holiday in Rome emerged last month. 

The run came following reports that Catherine, 49, was planning to leave her husband and their marriage was ‘as good as over’ following the cosy snaps.

But it appears that Dominic is still staying at the family home as he received a new ride-on lawn mower at the property on Thursday afternoon.

Dominic was casually dressed in a green North Face jumper which he wore with black jeans and a pair of brown suede boots.

The Affair actor assisted the delivery driver as helped him offload the orange lawn mower from a trailer. 

He also emerged at one point wearing a baseball cap and a black face mask.

Friends of Catherine said she is set to walk away from their 10-year marriage, after seeing pictures of him on a romantic weekend with Lily.

This marked the first time Dominic and Catherine have been seen together in the idyllic Wiltshire village where they live since news of their marriage problems became public.  

Neighbours revealed landscape gardener Catherine returned to the couple’s home last week after being holed up at her ancestral home of Glin Castle in County Limerick, Ireland.

A resident of the village where the couple live with their four children told MailOnline: ‘We’ve seen him out running and walking the dog. Catherine has been back for about five days and she’s been spotted but we’ve not seen the two of them together.

‘There are a lot of rumours doing the rounds about the future of their marriage but whatever happens, it’s nice to see them doing something together because they are a popular couple.’

Another resident added: ‘It’s quite common knowledge that they’ve got marital problems and we’ve not seen them together recently.’  

Earlier on Tuesday, friends claimed Catherine is ‘completely devastated’ at the prospect of her marriage being over because she’s ‘still mad about’ West.

But they speculate that Catherine, who has four children with West, had grown tired of being an actor’s wife ‘with all that entails.’

A friend told MailOnline: ‘He lives this other life where he’s away at least half the year and she and the kids are waiting for him.  

‘She’s living in a house in England for his career when I think anyone who knows her knows she would much rather be home in Ireland.

‘The pictures of Dominic in Rome show just how separate their lives have become.

‘Catherine is still mad about Dominic but it’s plainly not working. She’s been humiliated. Painful as it is, this looks like it could be the time to leave him.’  

TV and film stars Dominic and Lily became the subject of worldwide scrutiny, when the images emerged showing the pair enjoying an al fresco lunch with their mutual agent, Angharad Wood.  

Lily and Dominic enjoyed a two-day vacation in Italy where they were seen riding on a scooter through Rome, and The Affair star appeared to at one point lean over and kiss her neck.

A source told MailOnline they spent two nights in a suite at the top Hotel De La Ville with a panoramic view over the city and just at two minutes walk from the Spanish steps. Just days later, the father-of-five and his wife defended their marriage.

This came hours after Catherine told friends she was ‘heartbroken’ over the images, which went viral, 

The shell-shocked mother-of-four had clutched a tissue in her hand as she gingerly stepped out of the marital home in Chippenham, Wiltshire with her husband by her side, hiding her ring finger in her jeans pocket.

Dominic’s ring was off as it had been for his weekend with Lily.  

It was previously reported that Catherine held crisis talks with her family over the future of her marriage. 

The couple – who tied the knot in June 2010 after reuniting following their university romance – share Dora, 13, Senan, 12, Francis, 11, and Christabel, seven, together, while the Sheffield native has another daughter Martha, 21, with former girlfriend, aristocrat, Polly Astor.
